It’s Independence Day here in the USA and I wasn’t really planning on doing much in the way of website posting since this is a good day to reflect on our nation and the freedoms that we have. It’s also a great day to spend with the loved ones be they closer or distant family and friends. However when a valued press resource shared the existence of a new live video from the Dead Daisies that fell right in line with the day I knew that bringing it to your attention was paramount. I’ll start with the bands statement on the clip and then follow said video with some closing thoughts.
“We first did “American Band” by Grand Funk Railroad for our troops in South Korea. We wanted to bring a little bit of something “American” to our men and women in uniform, and give them a taste of home. So, what better way than a classic American tune by a legendary American band. The song went over so well we decided to keep playing it and subsequently recorded it for our “Live and Louder” album. Enjoy the Daisies version, the video, and your FREEDOM the troops are fighting for on this celebration of our independence as a young, sovereign nation!!!”
